Tech giant Google is reportedly set to give a sneak peak of its newest flagships Nexus 6 Phone, Nexus 9 tablet and the finished version of Android L to the world on Wednesday.

According to a report in Forbes, it would be a low-key announcement via blog post instead of a flashy press event. However, this would not be the first time Google has opted to launch hardware or software with a webpage and a few YouTube videos.

Moreover, users may also be keen to know what candy-flavoured name L stands for and the closest guesses are lollipop or licorice, PC World reported.

Google's has reportedly let the cat out of the bag with a series of tweets about licorice, while a lollipop-shaped icon has others thinking that the new Android version would be getting a different confectionery name.

The new Android version would be running on an HTC-built Nexus 9 that should reportedly be a more robust iPad competitor than the current Nexus 7. It is also speculated to have an 8.9-inch, 2048 x 1440 display with a 64-bit Tegra K1 processor and 8 megapixel rear-facing camera. Along with a 3MP front shooter, the tablet may also boast stereo front-facing speakers.

Pricing is slated to be 400 dollars for a 16GB and 500 dollars for a 32GB LTE version.

No prices were offered for the Nexus 6, though it is speculated to stick pretty close to the current-gen Nexus 5, which sells unlocked in two models 350 dollars for 16GB and 400 dollars for 32GB, the report added.
